Dendi started his Dota 2 career with Na'Vi, who quickly established themselves as one of the best teams in the world by winning The International 2011. Na'Vi continued to dominate and won many tournaments in the years 2011, 2012 and 2013. Dendi was the center of Na'Vi's consistent stable and skilled rosters, with his performance greatly contributing to their success. The Natus Vincere Dota 2 team achieved significant success with Dendi as their midlaner during the first few years of the game; they finished as the runners-up for both The International 2012 and The International 2013, losing out to Invictus Gaming and Alliance, respectively. 2013 would mark the last year of Na'Vi and Dendi's dominance in the Dota 2 scene, as they only recorded two LAN victories since January 2014. The International 2014 saw Na'Vi and Dendi finishing the tournament outside of the top 2 for the first time and the following two Internationals, TI 5 and TI 6, they would finish in last place. The results would deteriorate further, as they would fail to even qualify for The International 2017, they failed to advance out of the group stage of the regional qualifiers. This marked the first year of The International tournaments without Dendi attending as a player. The 2017/18 season started of promising for Dendi and Na'Vi, who dominated the CIS scene in the early months, crowning their improving results with their second LAN victory since 2014. However, the second half of the season saw the roster break apart and finally the team would fail to even reach the regional qualifiers for The International 2018, after losing in the open qualifier. Four years of roster instability and poor results finally took their toll on the reputation of the Na'Vi organization and on Dendi's status as a legendary player and a top tier midlaner. After 8 years playing mid on Na'Vi, Dendi was finally removed from the active roster in September 2018. However, Dendi vowed to continue playing professionally. After a brief stint on Tigers, Dendi joined The Pango. In January 2020 Dendi developed his own organization called B8.
